Encompassing 600 acres of barrier beach and salt marsh –and a short two hour hop from Boston– Horseneck Beach State Reservation in Massachusetts offers a breezy two-mile shoreline for a relaxing coastal camping trip. The southwest exposure to Buzzard Bay makes for a rocky waterfront typical of the northeast, while the less common natural sand beach will make southerners feel right at home.

As soon as you make the entrance to the Gulf Islands National Seashore Fort Pickens Campground, it is easy to imagine what it must have looked like to the Spanish explorer Tristan de Luna in 1559. Bordered on the south by the Gulf of Mexico and to the north by Pensacola Bay, the gentle Gulf waters still caress the sugar white beaches and wind swept dunes. Only sand scrub oaks and sea grass protect this little quarter mile wide barrier island - just as they did 450 years ago.
